Trauma and Learning Resources

Helping Traumatized Children LearnHelping Traumatized Children Learn, a 117-page report by the Massachusetts Advocates for Children Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative, summarizes the research on how child development is affected by trauma, noting the varied consequences for academic performance as well as social and emotional functioning. This book also identifies the need for school-wide ecological supports (Trauma Sensitive Schools) as the basis for student success.
